Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

La Fratrie (Brotherhood) is an artistic duo composed of two brothers, Karim and Luc Berchiche born in 1978 and 1981 in Le Quesnoy, France. The two brothers behind La Fratrie create fascinating, precise sculptures which evoke the question of man’s relationship with the environment.

Miniature islands suspended in the air, minute buildings, these sculptures, made from multiple materials turn their creators into the architects of a utopian world with their physical and artistic production. These floating rocks make up so many worlds in and of themselves, illusions uprooted from their original space.
